Play Ball!

And so it begins!  Any thoughts or predictions for the coming season?

Hard to predict a clear-cut favorite in the AL East.  The Yankees have so many injuries, their success will depend upon getting their regulars back and healthy.  Toronto looks much better.  The Red Sox are hard to peg, as is Baltimore.  The Rays are always solid, but don't have that stacked list of major-league ready prospects at AAA.

The Nats and Braves both look tough in the NL East.  The Angels have the bats, but maybe not the pitching.  The Dodgers?  Anybody's guess.  The Giants will be tough again too.

All and all it should be an interesting and competitive year.  And I, for one, will be sad to see Mo go, but will enjoy his final season. 

And I won't be sad if MLB smacks A-Rod (and the rest of the PED users) with a huge suspension.

Well, living where I do, I have my eye on the White Sox. They've lost a few and acquired a few and already one of their pitchers is on the DL. But they won their season opener yesterday so who knows. But, man, is it ever great to have baseball on the airwaves again - a sure sign of Spring!

BTW, has your commentary on 1 Corinthians hit the bookstores yet? Looks like the publisher is showing it as available on his website, but I didn't see it in the WSC bookstore.

The opening of baseball season is always great news, especially for us living in the north. I watched my Detroit Tigers open their season against the Twins in Minnesota on Monday and it was about 33 degrees there at game time! Their home opener in Detroit is Friday against your beloved Yankees! Even a banged-up Yankee squad can still be a formidable force to deal with. It should be a good game and a good season.

One bad thing about spring baseball is I'm reminded how much I miss the voice of Ernie Harwell.

As always, thanks to you and the WHI crew for all you do!

It sounds like you are a Yankee Fan?

If one is not a Yankee fan then he is an Arminian :)

I am sorry that I merely sound like a Yankees fan. I have been a diehard Yankees fan since July 29, 1964, when my parents took me to see the Yankees play the Angels at Dodger Stadium. Jim Bouton pitched against Bo Belinsky. Yankees won 5-0. I'll never forget it.

In addition to pastoring a church, I also work at a Christian bookstore. I had one customer tell me (upon seeing my Red Sox watch) that she had to question whether or not I was a believer in Jesus Christ! Living in upstate New York, it is tough to root for the Red Sox.

I'm glad baseball is back.
